According to sources, Subramani was at his elder brother C Murugesan’s quarry in Kalpadi panchayat on Friday morning when the rockslide occurred at the site.
Considering his age, ill health, and the compensation paid, Justice K Murali Shankar granted the conditional bail.
During the afternoon hours, the team executed a controlled explosion strategy by placing 32 explosives around the stones in order to break them into pieces.
The condition of the other trapped man is not known although rescue efforts are continuing.
According to police, the giant boulders crushed three lorries and three cranes and trapped Murugan, Vijay, Selvam, Murugan, Rajendran and Selvakumar, all drivers.
